3. Remember her Money Personality. Moms wear so many hats and give so much that at times you might not be able to tell, but every mother has a personal approach to money. Consider her approach as you prepare to honor her:
- If she's a Saver: A plate of homemade cookies is a great gift. It shows that you put in time and effort, and it didn't cost very much.
- If she's a Spender: A nice dinner, spectacular roses or a velvety box with a sparkly surprise would be perfect gifts for your mom.
- If she's a Risk Taker: Rev up your creative juices for your Risk Taker mom. Consider taking her to the newest restaurant in town (only if she hasn't already beat you there), sign her up for a French cooking class, or surprise her with tickets for a summer adventure.
